invest in yourself
I get it. One of the hardest things to do as a photographer, especially one who is just starting out, is spending money on education. I spent $8000+ on a college course for photography and for years I told everyone, "It wasn't worth it." I felt like I had wasted money learning such basic stuff, stuff that I could have learned on my own, or from a YouTube channel.
But the truth is, the more I grow in this industry, the more I realize a lot of what I was taught by my mentors has impacted the way I run my business and the way that I photograph. If I step back and look at the big scale, sure, I probably didn't need to spend $8000 to learn half the stuff that I did, but I did meet some amazing people who are still in my life today, and have impacted me in ways I can't explain. I guess it was worth it.
But, we'll never reach our full capacity if we don't continue to learn or grow. Technology is always changing. Trends are always changing. It's so important to learn as you go!
I say all that to say, starting out means a tight budget, but it also means you NEED to invest in your education. While I truly believe it's worth it to do a photography workshop or mentoring session with the incredible artists out there and pay $400+, I'm starting out too- and want to give new photographers the chance to invest in their business at an affordable rate.
we'll never reach the capacity of our potential if we're never open to learning.
These sessions are fully customizable. We can chat about editing, workflow, business, pricing, marketing, or anything else!
After chatting over coffee over all the things photography, we'll go photograph a couple or individual together. I will direct you, give you tips on posing, show you how to draw emotion, and develop your style!
